Hello bookish pals and welcome to Sunday on damppebbles. I hope you have a relaxing day planned and that you get to spend some quality time with a good book. What’s that you say? You’ve just finished a great book and now you’re on the lookout for an even better one? Well, you’ve come to the right place as so far this series we’ve recommended the grand total of 72 books with three books being chosen by our panel of highly qualified experts more than once! Click HERE to see all of the posts published so far.
I am delighted to welcome a fairly new-to-me blogger to damppebbles today to share the #R3COMM3ND3D2022 book love, it’s Patricia B. of Book Cravings. I have recently subscribed to Patricia’s blog and I am loving what I’m seeing! Make sure you give Patricia and her a blog a follow across the socials, if you don’t already.
So, what is #R3COMM3ND3D2022? It’s about sharing the book love. It’s a chance for authors, book bloggers, reviewers and bookstagrammers to shout about three (yes, *only* three) books they love. They can be written by any author, in any genre and published in any way (traditionally, indie press or self-published). But there is a catch. All three books must have been published in 2022. To make things interesting there are a couple of teeny, tiny rules; 1) the book must have FIRST been published in 2022 and 2) special editions and reissues do not count. I like to keep you lovely people on your toes 😉
Here are the three books Patricia recommends…
Her Perfect Twin by Sarah Bonner
I predicted this debut novel would be the “book of the year” and in fact it was just named one of Publishers Weekly Best Mystery/Thriller Books of 2022. This was very original, had a creative use of POV and was one of the better descriptions of how a lockdown plays out in a thriller.

The Golden Couple by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen
This was one of the most creative, well written books I read this year. It’s hard to believe this was co-written as it flows and the timing is impeccable.

Amen Maxine by Faith Gardner
This was sort of a genre buster, about an Alexa type machine in the near future. I thought it would be sci-fi leaning, but it was a great thriller!
Patricia’s Review of Amen Maxine
Thank you so much, Patricia. Three cracking books which I am adding straight to the TBR. They all sound so good!

Sadly submissions for #R3COMM3D3D2022 are now closed. Shortly after the last post I will be inviting you to attend the virtual after-show party, which should be fun. We’ll get to gaze upon the marvellous and majestic beauty of 2022’s books and also crown 2022’s winner, if we have one (they’re all winners, right?). Until then stay tuned as we have lots more bookish gorgeousness heading your way throughout November.
